Most places that hard coat/anodize parts price the stuff out based on what fits in one basket. Full basket = $125 or 1 part in the basket = $125. At least in my experience with that stuff.
Last batch of aluminum parts I had anodized were sent to Florida. Guy had really good prices for what I wanted but it was also multiple parts and not a single piece like yours.
Nice front porch there Tex. I have machinists that can make parts for me, but I'm smart enough to price out the whole project before deluding myself into thinking that I can save money on brodozer parts by having a one-off made.
Even at 150 it’s still 50 bucks cheaper then buying one, if I don’t want to spend the money I’ll spray bomb it every few months no big deal. Are purpose built work trucks bro dozers now? Don’t know, don’t really care.
Bumper looks a little........ Outback Australia Mad Max road train.
But If it has a purpose..?
Purpose "built" by bolting some pretty wheels and a front porch on to it?
$50 cheaper because your buddy's time means nothing to you.
When the anodize wore off my 1992 AR receivers the price to get an ffl anodizer to refinish them was insane, so I decided to try this new stuff and sent them out for Ceracoat. It was $25 8 years ago and the finish is still like new but for one scratch that would be a lot more in anodized guns. I’ve been rough on this thing over the years and I’m sold on it. Back then there were only a couple colors, now there’s dozens.
Not any help here, but what do you think of those toyos? I’ve heard some questionable things about them in the snow, but I trust a review from someone here far more than I trust reviews on tire rack.
Since you mentioned elk Im guessing youre somewhat close to elk county. I know of a place near there that may let you throw it in with whatever load theyre doing but youre kind of an ass. Besides if youre buddy runs such a big machine shop youd think hed be aware of someone capable.
Also you mentioned us butt pirates being jealous of your machinist friend. Do you not realize many of the members here are quite capable of doing that work themselves some of us even have the capability of doing it in our own home shops.
It's on a hard use hard core work rig? Spray it with some paint and bake it in the oven. Or don't. And just let it do what it will do naturally. What does it matter what it looks like on your bro-field truck?
Elk county borders mine actually. Yes I’m very aware of that and yes I’m an ass, is new pirate not comprised of nothing but assholes like old pirate? The butt hurt sure is strong here. You weren’t included in the butt pirate comment but whatever.
Unfortunately they don’t deal with anything anodized.
They may not deal with anything anodized but I will guarantee they deal with metal finishing or coating of some kind or its not much of a machine shop, but Im sure you know that.
Im not the least bit butthurt. You come on as a new guy and act like an asshole talking down to people that are apparently way more capable than you are. Although I would expect no less out of a early 20s dipshit.
